In conversation with… Molly Watt

Molly Watt is a 22-year-old Accessibility Consultant and Inclusive Technology Evangelist. She lives with a genetic condition called Usher Syndrome, deafblindness, and is completely reliant and benefits from assistive technology. As a result, she is passionate about working in the world of digital accessibility and usability, promoting the use of assistive technology for those who need it.

Molly was a speaker at February’s DigitalHealth.London/collaborate summit, where she joined a panel discussion around digital participation and inclusion. In keeping with the theme of this year’s summit, we took the opportunity to sit down with Molly to ask her: why does tomorrow’s patient need a digital NHS?
